My self-summary
Visiting the Bay Area in Feb./Mar./Apr.

Introverted and quiet, except when I'm really, really not. I overthink everything but know it's a bad habit. I do the classics: that's Latin and Greek, although other things that people call 'classics' are yummy too.

I'm big on cuddling. I hope you are too.

CrossFit, yum yum.

I really love the wilderness.

Once I walked 12 miles through Wisconsin farmland for a day-trip and got bitten by a farmdog.

What I’m doing with my life
Classics ---> mind. Secularism. I teach and that's going to be my profession, probably. Academia is all well and good, but I have notsomuch interest in abstruse scholarship divorced from teaching. I sing! Choral music makes the world go round, but a cappella is doopsie. I'm (eternally . . .) trying to learn to cook.
I’m really good at
Dead languages. I have a really good falsetto.
The first things people usually notice about me
Beard. Beard beard beard. Bread. Berad. Brade. Brdea rebad drabe abedr
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Now reading: Augustine! Wittgenstein! Steven Erikson! Hornblower!! Also Samuel Butler (such a BAMF)!!! Forever slowly working my way through Shakespeare's œuvre (Henry V is delicious!). Neal Stephenson kicks ass, though Reamde was a slight disappointment. My favorite play, ever, may well be Love's Labour's Lost.

Middlemarch. Oh baby.

I've never read a book on anything but paper, and I probably never will.

Movies: black-and-white classics (Katharine Hepburn = goddess; also, Witness for the Prosecution et sim.) and science fiction. 30 Rock, Battlestar Galactica. Doctor Who, Torchwood.

Don't ask me about music past the Beatles: I've memorized substantial amounts of Lady Gaga lyrics through sheer exposure but that's about it. (That doesn't stop me clubbing, though, in blissful ignorance.) Renaissance polyphony hellzayeah. Monteverdi makes me swoon, oh yeah.

Food: spicy. I pretend to eat paleo, except I don't have any illusions that I'll ever give up pastry. Or quinoa. Or beer.

I play video games too, sometimes. It's the most exciting burgeoning new medium of art to arise in our time. Europa Universalis IV, Crusader Kings II. Infocom text adventures. Fallen London junkie.
The six things I could never do without
I may describe myself as an introvert, but I think I would go crazy without someone who's good to talk to. The only other thing I can think of is "books", but that might be a cop-out. A chorus to sing with.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the nature of the self. The viability of a nontheistic objective morality. Prosody of dead languages. Berryline. Other food. Typography! I *always* use en and em dashes correctly. And it's not a useless skill either: you wouldn't believe the money to be had in proofreading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have congenital oligodontia. (And I like fancy polysyllabic Greco-Latinate words for things, too!)

Sometimes when I look at a person's face I see their skull and get really weirded out.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like guys
  • Ages 18–42
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
You think I seem like an oddball in an intriguing way rather than an off-putting way (there is clearly no middle option!). If you like to cuddle. If you're open-minded, open-hearted, and mellow.
